A facelift is a facial plastic surgery that focuses on tightening loose, saggy skin and removing excess fat deposits. This can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, extra skin and fat, and skin laxity. While a facelift addresses many signs of aging and can make you look younger, it will not magically fill in every facial wrinkle and hollow. This is where fillers after a facelift can enhance your results.
After the improvements and benefits seen from a Seattle facelift, many patients choose to explore non-surgical options to enhance and maintain their results. Dermal fillers can fill in facial hollows for better facial balance and overall younger contours. A facelift procedure typically only addresses the lower half of the face. Therefore, the cheeks and tear troughs often do not see the same attention as the jowls and neck.
In these areas where hollows are common with age, a qualified injector can inject fillers to achieve a natural looking plump. Additionally, lip fillers can complement the results of a facelift surgery and even out the face.
Along with fillers, other facial injectables, like BOTOX can help prevent and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Santos, call us at 206-430-1035 or contact us online.
